    I really like these 3D effects coming round the side of the pages and actually used it when designing my past few websites. It sure does bring that extra bit of life to the page.

    I’ve never seen anything like though. Must check it out.

    Be nice to hear your thoughts on the style Insic.

    Please don’t be inspired by trends. At lest 1 good thing comes out of these designs….no more ’rounded edges’. :)
